Default Most beautiful place you have ever been

Mine has to be Xel-Ha down in Mexico. It's where all the underground rivers in the area go into the ocean. It was amazing! The snorkeling was the best. The fish were so abundant, huge and colorful. A really nice experience. On the airplane ride there we had a guy get really serious and tell us if you do anything here go to Xel-ha, great advice!



Also nearby there is the ancient city of Tulum. You take these crazy stairs from the cliff to the beach and can swim on the beach there. Amazing.

I visited friends in the little town of Viu ("vyoo") in the Italian Alps. We drove about 20 minutes NW and were amongst the great Alps--towering chunks of rock that make you feel like a gnat. Snow in June. France over the mountain. Wow.

Funny you just posted, Monk. I was going to say the Medeterrenian coast of Turkey.

There are many little spots there that are excellent. For me I guess it was as much circumstance as it was the actual scenery, as that's where I met my wife. Beautiful beaches, teriffic atmosphere, etc.....

Well, I've been to most of those places (Tulum, Cancun, Chitzen Itza/Oslo, Lillihammer, Dombas, and Geiranger Fjord) plus thousands more (Antalya, Ephesus, Pammulkale, Turkey)...Minoan Palace, Iraklion, Crete...almost all the Spanish islands n the Med plus Grand Canary, Malta, Stonehenge in England, most of Ireland and Europe in General...hard to decide...

I really can't think of a place I really enjoyed over another. Finding new places to vacation is sometimes a chore in itself...probably back to the Caribbean for the 5th time...
